Patriot Paul Revere is best known for his midnight ride on April 18, 1775, where he warned the Colonial revolutionist  "The British are Coming" after learning the British planned on invading to disarm rebels.   His warning was memorialized in  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow classic poem “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.

Secondly, he was also known as a silversmith and launched a company that made high-end pots and pans called Revere Ware that was in business until about 10 years ago, and Revere Copper which is still in business to this day and one of the top copper manufacturers in the world.

He now can also be known as having lived in the oldest building in Boston, a house that was 90 years old when he purchased it in 1770.
